I am a senior researcher in radio astronomy at the University of Oxford, UK, and a visiting professor at Rhodes University, South Africa.

I use continuum and spectral line observations with radio interferometers to study various phenomena in the Universe, and work on new and automated ways to process such data. I am involved in the design and execution of several large-scale radio surveys using next-generation radio telescopes, primarily MeerKAT.

A list of my publications can be found on the ADS here.

Prior to my current position I was a Senior Research Scientist, and later head of the astrophysics group (2013-2017), at CSIRO Astronomy & Space Science, where I worked mainly on commissioning the ASKAP telescope. I also previously held an Honorary Senior Research Associate (2011-2017) position at Rhodes University. Before that I was a SEPnet Fellow (2011-2013), and post-doc (2004-2011) at the University of Oxford. I received my PhD in astrophysics from the University of Manchester (2005).

Thanks for visiting.
